the several block radius in this neighborhood, i talked to several people that did not know this james holmes, but i did talk to a former bouncer just about half an hour ago who lives in this neighborhood and he recognizes james holmes and the former bouncer was, you know, working at this bar around the corner, pretty popular for the folks who live here, and he describes james holmes as a laid-back guy that would go to the bar every now and then on sunday nights for karaoke night, and that he mainly kept to himself and that he would show up to the bar by himself and that he was really never seen with anybody. so at this point, we are watching the scene unfold and then there's no doubt, with the neighbors here that are caught up in this chaotic situation, there's no doubt this incident is going to be, you know, burned on the consciousness of colorado for many years, given this incident. it's astonishing watching this unfold. >> you know the area and you know what happened overnight. this was the multiplex in suburban denver. we know it's very close to an air force base and that there were some
eagan holmes, into custody without incident outside that same emergency exit. authorities searched his car, which was located just outside. they confirmed that they recovered four guns. three that he had with him, apparently, inside the theater, one from the car. they were a remington model 890 single daryl, 12 gauge shotgun, two hand glock guns and an air-type rifle often referred to as an assault rifle. we also learned all of these guns were purchased within the last two months. the most recent just a couple of weeks ago, all of them were purchased legally. now, letsds ta's take a look wh know about this suspect. police tell nbc news that james eagan holmes it dyed his hair, kind of an orangish-red and identify as the joker, of course, one of batman's nemesises. holmes is 24 years old originally from san diego. a ph.d. student at the university of colorado in denver and described as a brilliant science student. the university says he enrolled in june of last year, but was in the process of withdrawing from the neuroscience graduate program. after his arrest, he actually told police t

officer. >> reporter: as we have been talking about, holmes faces his first court appearance tomorrow. as far as other evidence collected here last night, the fbi also left with a lab top and a hard drive. back to you. >> kristin dahlgren, many thanks for that. as kristin was just saying, he will be in court tomorrow. for more on the legal process ahead, i'm joined by former prosecutor and criminal defense attorney, sima are. what do you expect to happen tomorrow? >> tomorrow is the initial advise many. bail is not an issue, because he has been remanded because of so many homicides involved. at this point, there is a difference between when police brings charges and the d.a. decides what charges are going to be indicted. this is the time when mr. holmes is going to be advised of his constitutional rights. >> so we have 12 killed, 58 injured. when you talk about the charges, the difference between police and what the d.a. brings, how do they decide that and what do you expect to see? >> the d.a. is going to look at different counts of murder and decide what can i prove? what i suspect
is mr. holmes will be advised of the charges that he is being investigated for. for our knowledge, he hasn't even been charged. so it's simply an indication of what they're looking at right now. >> in colorado, they have 72 hours to officially file charges, is that right? >> yeah, they have three business days, and that time can be extended either by agreement of the parties or the court on its own can extend that time if if necessary. >> so, obviously, larry, this is just the beginning of what's going to be a very long process. here we have somebody who was seen by dozens, hundreds of witnesses, picked up at the scene in body armor, directed police, they say, to an apartment that was booby trapped. this is not a question of, was he the guy, as much as, right now, is he competent to stand trial. would that be a fair assessment? >> we have both competency and eventually sanity, and they are different standards. one can be competent and insane, one can be sane, but probably pass the competency test. we have some indications, though, that he is very mentally unstable. we heard about the
the alleged shooter, james holmes in court yesterday. mike taibbi is live in centennial, colorado, watching that for us. what's the latest on the investigation? >> reporter: the investigation will continue, but there are only a few elements still to be investigated. the forensic scene at theater and the suspect's apartment has been completed at this point. they're still checking how it was and by what means the suspect james holmes was able to have some 50 packages filled with all the supplies that added up to his alleged arsenal, were given to him, either at an address at the university of colorado where he'd been a grad student or at his apartment about five blocks from the campus. they're talking to officials at the university about that at this point. the two moisture decisions still being made in the case is whether the prosecution will go for the death penalty. that decision will be made within 60 days after the arraignment. and at that arraignment, the second part of the story, will the defense go for an ngi, lawyers call it a not guilty by reason of insanity, but that keeps the arra
